Delivery

Q. How quickly can I have my order?


We keep all Grey carpet size decks in stock, and all riser heights and we aim to despatch goods within 2 to 3 days of your order. We normally deliver goods on a pallet and these are sent on a standard 2 to 3 day delivery service. Therefore our standard delivery leadtime is around 7 days. If you require an express service please enquire. all other carpet colours and materials, extend this lead time by a few extra days. please check at the time of enquiry.

Q. What about delivery access - is it a large lorry?


Very often our deliveries are sent on pallets if the order contains decks, these will quite often be delivered in a large lorry or an articulated lorry. Smaller deliveries such as parts and risers will be delivered on a carton service. Please note that not all lorries have taillifts so they may need help handling the goods. Our deliveries include service to the ground floor only.

Yes, we also offer immediate credit accounts to most church organisations.

Deck Size & Covering

Q. Which desk size do I need?


Everyone makes their own choice as to the deck size they prefer, although there are some important points to consider;
The most economic way to create a stage area is to use the 2m x 1m decks
If you wish to transport decks, make sure you can fit the size you order in your vehicle
The weights of Revostage decks is the best in the market, so moving and storing is fine with larger decks
You gain greater flexibilty for configurations and tiers etc. by using smaller decks



^ TOP

Q. can you give me some advice on deck covering?


Yes, we offer two forms of covering:

Carpet & Vinyl

We stock dark grey carpet decks, but you can also choose from green, black and blue carpet if required. These extend the lead time for delivery by an extra 3 days, as does vinyl which is available in Silver Grey or Black

Vinyl covering is approximately £10 more expensive per deck. The vinyl coverings come with a disclaimer - stating that thye must be stored in suitable conditions as they are prone to shrinkage if exposed to extreme heat or cold.

Grey carpet decks are stocked because they are the most popular - they look newer for longer.

We can also print on any covering required to match corporate branding - bespoke charges apply.



^ TOP

Riser Heights

Q. Whats the most popular riser height?


The most popular height of riser is the 400mm. This equates to around 18 inches. Always remember the deck is 30mm thick so the platform finish height in this situation would be 430mm.



^ TOP

Q. Can I have a height made to match my existing stage?


Yes, we make many bespoke heights. Although we don't stock these we can turn around a bespoke height riser within 2 weeks. There is an extra tooloing cost for a height we haven't made before. Check with sales as to the heights we have previously made as specials.



^ TOP

Q. Can I stack risers?


Yes, although we have increased our range of risers to 1m tall now, which in many cases does away with the need to stack. Don't forget of course we can make the height you need as a special too. It far more cost effective to have 1 riser of the correct height, than to stack two riser on top of each other.

We'll need your height of riser. Click here for a useful Identification Image, which will give you our coding for the part you need.

Q. Whats the difference between your Longlife cleats and other branded cleats?


Revostage used to use the flat cleats offered by all other brands of portable staging, but found we were forever replacing them for customers. So we have designed a patented Longlife locking cleat - (crocodile teeth) - which lasts for many more years.

Because cleats are around £10-£12 each and there are 4 per deck, decks can become very expensive if you have to keep replacing cleats that fail.

Our view on this is that a competitior deck plus an extra set of cleats within 18 months, equates to a higher cost than a Revostage deck with the longlife cleats.

You'll notice many other brands have a square cut out, in the deck frame at one end - this is a telltail sign that the cleats need replacing regularly.

3D Stage Builder

Q. I cant use the stage builder?


This may because your computer needs a flash payer to load the stage builder. Please visit www.adobe.com and download the latest FREE flash player.

Q. I cant understand the 3D stage builder tool?


The stage builder tool is designed to help show you a graphical image of how your stage may look.

The dropzone on the grid is where you choice of size and height is placed, you simply move your choices to anywhere on the grid. You can rotate them, or even expand the screen to build a big stage.

To choose heights and deck sizes, click the deck size edit button, to view the menu of deck colour and height.

Then to add one to the dropzone click the large suqre are surronding the edit button. Keep repeating until you are happy with your design.

You can then add discount codes if you have one -to get a rough budget cost (we say rough because no accessories or fittings are included)

You can also save the design for later - by entering your email address - a link to your stage will then be emailed to you.

Fire Specification

Q. Is it fire retardant?


Yes, Revostage is made with fire retardant materials, even the carpet has a fire rating.

Weights & Loads

Q. Why does Revostage state 2.4 tonnes when other makes say 1 tonne?


We believe in producing the best quality product possible, yes ok, we could reduce the cost of the product by reducing the weight loading, but we would rather give you a product you know is going to work for many years. That's why we have had Revostage independently weight load tested by Sheffield University testing department to a load of 2.4 tonnes.

We recommend not exceeding 2 tonnes per square metre to keep the product in good condition.

As you can see from our brochure you can literally park your car on Revostage.



^ TOP

Other Brands of Modular Staging

Q. Is revostage the same as other portable stage brands on the internet?


No, Revostage is made in Sheffield by Panel Systems Limited. We do not make staging for anyone else. we have a UK wide network of Hire Partners who stock Revostage to hire. These tend to be AV companies who believe in the product for its quality and longevity of use.



^ TOP

Assembly

Q. Is it hard to use, it looks complicated?


No, absolutely not, Y6 children put Revostage up in schools across the country. Our instruction leaflet shows how easy it is to assemble. You can assemble a 4m x 2m stage area in under 10 minutes.



^ TOP

Storage

Q. I need to store the stage in a small cupboard, is this possible?


It depends on the actual size of the cupboard, but Revostage condenses down to a very small area. The remain their size at all times, so storing them again the wall or on the floor is quite easy. The risers concertina down to 10% of their expanded size, take a look at the actual open and closed sizes here

We also provide storage trolleys if required .



^ TOP

Q. Will i need a flight case?


Not really, it depends if you are planning on transporting your staging around. Flight cases are very useful for keeping your stage in tip top condition.

Its worth remembering that the product is made of plywood, honeycomb, and aluminium. Good storage is essential to keep Revostage in good condition. As with most products please dont expose Revostage decks to adverse conditions such as extreme heat (radiators) or cold (outdoor stores).



^ TOP

Looking after Revostage

Q. Should i be aware of any special storage for my revostage?


Yes, please avoid extreme heat and cold.
Deck coverings like carpet and vinyl can be prone to shrinkage if exposed to adverse conditions.

Try to open riser while on the floor, to stop and undue stress on the aluminium legs and supports.

Give people a quick lesson on how to assemble and take down Revostage before they use it. The majority of parts that need replacing come from people bending rods, who are not familiar with the instructions.
